The usual suspects – Carolyn “I wouldn’t know an assault weapon if it licked my labia, but let’s ban them anyway” McCarthy and Frank “We politicians give you your rights” Lautenberg have put out the clarion shriek for more gun control in the wake of the horrible shootings in Aurora, Colorado.
Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) — whose husband was killed and son seriously injured in a 1993 shooting on a Long Island commuter train — told reporters on Friday that the National Rifle Association (NRA) and other opponents of gun control have a simple but effective strategy following gun violence tragedies.
“They will wait it out, wait it out, wait it out, until people forget about it again, until another tragedy happens like last night,” said McCarthy. “We should be proactive before another tragedy happens.
And by “proactive,” the old, moldy cunt means relieve people of their rights before they actually use them to protect themselves from those to whom the law is merely a slight inconvenience.
McCarthy and Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) have worked closely together on a bill that would tighten restrictions on gun shows, where firearms can be easily bought by people with criminal records in some states.
Of course, the latest psycho murdering piece of shit James Holmes didn’t purchase any guns at any gun shows. He very legally walked into some shops, passed a background check, because he never had any run-ins with the law, and lawfully made his purchases. And for this, the 99.9 percent of gun owners who don’t commit crimes with their firearms must be punished, their rights eroded or outright destroyed, because the petty tyrants in Washington like Lautenberg (who doesn’t even believe you have any fundamental rights that aren’t grated to you by the government) and McCarthy, who is too stupid to know what kind of guns she wants to ban, but just knows they go BOOM!
“We have to face the reality that these types of tragedies will continue to occur unless we do something about our nation’s lax gun laws,” said Lautenberg.
So passing a background check before making a purchase, being unable to carry your property on federal grounds, being fingerprinted and treated like a potential criminal for merely making a purchase that happens to be a firearm is apparently “lax.” And in Aurora, where it’s illegal to carry concealed or have a loaded firearm in your vehicle, and where the law-abiding are disarmed by the “law” that’s supposed to protect them, the laws that didn’t stop Holmes from committing mass murder, were too lax? How many more laws do you want murderous thugs to violate, asshats? Obviously Frank Lautenberg would rather sodomize you with more intrusions on your privacy and government infringements on your rights just so he can say he did “something” about gun violence, even though there is no evidence that more gun control ever actually reduced violence.
Not to be outdone in the asshat department, Dianne Feinstein joined the hoplophobic, panty-shitting fray, calling for the renewal of the “assault” weapons ban, asking why we “need” weapons of war.
As if politicians are in any way qualified to gauge what we, the people, need!
It’s a Bill of Rights, not a Bill of Needs, you festering sore on the ass of humanity!
And, by the way, the so-called “assault” weapons ban had no impact on violent crime.
The federal assault-weapons ban, scheduled to expire in September, is not responsible for the nation’s steady decline in gun-related violence and its renewal likely will achieve little, according to an independent study commissioned by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ).
“We cannot clearly credit the ban with any of the nation’s recent drop in gun violence. And, indeed, there has been no discernible reduction in the lethality and injuriousness of gun violence,” said the unreleased NIJ report, written by Christopher Koper, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania.
“It is thus premature to make definitive assessments of the ban’s impact on gun violence. Should it be renewed, the ban’s effects on gun violence are likely to be small at best and perhaps too small for reliable measurement,” said the report, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times.
The report also noted that assault weapons were “rarely used in gun crimes even before the ban.”
But none of these facts will stop the likes of Feinstein, McCarthy or Lautenberg from working to relieve you of your rights. They don’t believe you have rights – not ones that aren’t granted to you by the all-knowing, benevolent government – that’ comprised of the biggest number of violent thugs, morally and ethically corrupt goons and morons gathered together under one white-domed cupola (see: Jim Moran, the entire CBC, Babs Boxer, Feinstein, Boxer, Lautenberg, etc.)
They don’t care about you. They don’t care that in a similar situation to Aurora, you’ll be lying on the floor helpless, trying to shield your child… your girlfriend… your loved one… from the bullets with your own body, because you have been forced to leave your tool of self defense outside or at home. They don’t care that the very definition of “criminal” means that their existing laws mean nothing, and any more laws will mean even less.
They just want to use the tragedy to pass more laws that will prevent you from taking proactive steps to ensure your own safety. They want you to rely on them!
So they won’t let this crisis go to waste. They will use it to disarm you and endanger you. And when you’re completely at the mercy of armed thugs, they will crow that they need more authority to protect you, because you obviously can’t protect yourselves.
Folks, it’s time to stand up to them. You can’t let them vilify you, destroy your rights and leave you vulnerable to the vermin that roams the streets committing crimes with virtual impunity. Don’t let them disarm you and effectively paint a red bullseye on your back in the name of some nebulous idea of common good.
No one’s good has ever been served by leaving the law abiding defenseless against the lawless!
